Blog Complaints

My family and friends outside Kuwait tell me I don’t publish enough Kuwait photos. These two are for you, and I will try to work on this. 😉 These are from a recent trip to the Al Kout mall in Fehaheel, just south of Kuwait.

Ladies leaving the Al Kout Mall

I think this mosque is one of the most beautiful I have seen:

Is this not one of the most beautiful Starbucks you have seen? It sits on overlooking a small marina. Greetings to all my Seattle friends.

  1. I agree with your friends and family outside Kuwait. Post more photographs! I love your first photo! The second one is great too. That mosque is well designed 🙂

  2. You could’ve gotten better pictures. If you want you can use my camera. 10KD a day paid upfront. 😛

  3. OUCH! Mac! I could probably get better photos if I weren’t shooting out the car window half the time, but I take the shots I can get. So you are enjoying your new camera? 🙂

  4. Zahra – the first one is my favorite, too. The women are so graceful against the dusk sky.

  5. Hehe.. I was kidding. You know that. 😉

    Actually I’m not enjoying it, not at the moment I mean. I can’t hold it around everywhere without its bag. I’ve ordered one and still waiting on it to get delivered within the next few weeks. Also the weather doesn’t help at all. :/

  6. Mac, you have to start somewhere! Start with sand and sandstorms!

    It’s OK to criticize, my photos are not all good. Every now and then, I capture something stellar. And I found I had to buy a second, smaller edition of my camera to keep in my purse to zip out and capture a moment, rather than lug my bigger one all the time.

  7. I bet you are one of those women in designer Chloe abbayas in the photo.Try sending your family pictures of Getty beach at dusk, Kubbar island with the naturist reserve on the island and all,the Nuwaiseeb flyover, the gas chamber read the smoking room at KWI International and Sedu house. The shutterbug in you should also try and essay the other face of Kuwait on reel – the downtown Sheraton precinct on Sunday & Friday evenings, the Mirqab roundabout in the evenings and the flea market on Fridays. Who knows the latter pictures just might earn you a winning entry in a photo contest for National Geographic or Life magazine.

  8. Welcome, faith! You have some great ideas for photos. I am a little shy about shooting people – occasionally I will ask someone, but I am very careful. I haven’t seen Kubbar yet, and it sounds lovely – maybe like in February? 🙂

    It’s funny, it’s always harder to take photos where I live, because where you really live, you don’t want to look like a tourist, you know? I need to take some photos even of our local Co-op . . . !
